TV QUES­TIONS

Q: I guess I missed an episode, be­cause I have no idea why Sara (played by Jorja Fox) is back on CSI: Crime Scene In­ves­ti­ga­tion. The last I saw, she quit and went to live in the jun­gle, fol­lowed shortly by Gris­som. Later, she made a state­ment about her hus­band be­ing in Paris. Could you please clear up this puz­zle? — San­dra Rob­son, Port St. Lu­cie

A: The CBS show wrote Sara out dur­ing sea­son eight, and she bowed out by leav­ing Gris­som (Wil­liam Petersen) a let­ter ex­plain­ing that she had to go away to deal with per­sonal demons. She popped back in for the first cou­ple of sea­son-nine episodes, then reap­peared very briefly to­ward the mid­dle of that sea­son when Gris­som also left and met up with her in Costa Rica.

Sara then stayed ab­sent un­til the start of the 10th sea­son, when she re­turned to the crime lab to help be­cause of short staffing, due in part to the death of War­rick (Gary Dour­dan). Sara de­clared then that she and Gris­som are mar­ried now, and he’s in Paris teach­ing at the Sorbonne. Ev­i­dently in their case, ab­sence does make the heart grow fonder ... and will con­tinue to, since Sara is ex­pected to re­main for the show’s next sea­son.

Q: Can you tell us the sta­tus of Rea­gan’s Law, with Tom Sel­leck as the New York chief of po­lice? Will it be picked up as a reg­u­lar show on CBS? — Mar­i­lyn Lewis, San An­to­nio

A: It will. The net­work has re­named the se­ries Blue Bloods, and it will be part of the Fri­day lineup start­ing this fall.

Q: Has a movie ever been made about the Wright broth­ers, the pi­o­neers of avi­a­tion? —Kelly Smith, Grand Junc­tion, Colo.

A: Ar­guably the best-known one— and an ex­cel­lent one at that— is The Winds of Kitty Hawk, a 1978 TV movie that starred Michael Mo­ri­arty and David Huff­man as the de­ter­mined-to-fly sib­lings. There also is a 1997 drama, The Wright Broth­ers, fea­tur­ing a cast of rel­a­tive un­knowns (E.B. Mol­loy, Mark C. Mur­phy, et al.).
